    I've wanted to get the top of my Traditional Pro redone as a GT since the day I bought it. Sooooooooooo classy.

    nice! I would love a goldtop with p90s!
    our first drummer died in a bizzare gardening accident!



    I won't dance in a club like this,
    'Cause all the girls are sluts,
    And the beer tastes just like piss.

    my only goldtop is a pimped out xaviere xv-550 lp style semi hollow. it's got a set of fralin pure paf's along with new pots, caps, output jack, etc. Threw on a bone nut and did setup work (frets cleaned up in a few places, saddles filed and radiused, etc).

    That's purdy.

    Fralins? I've only heard them as single coils. How do the HB's sound?

    What is that? It has an unusual shape to it or is it the pic?

    As cool as the gold top itself is (especially with the cream WCR's), its the back that really stands out on this one. Its perfect, Gibson should make them like this instead of that light caramel color.

    that dark back is killer!!

    I was never big on goldies. I once got a great deal on a gt LTD EC400 and the color really grew on me.. I wish I had her back.. Here is my current goldilocks:




    Believe me when I say that some of the most amazing music in history was made on equipment that's not as good as what you own right now.
